    The unoffical marriage visa. Get a 15 day stamp, no visa, then get it extended for 60 days at immi for 1,900b starting from the end of the 15 based on family, repeat every 75 days. Was actually quite good for the border based lads near Laos and Cambo. Pick up a load of whiskey and fags at duty free prices, and pretty much turn a profit on the whole thing.

    The visa renewal was an annual trip.

    The border run was the 90 days.

    IIRC.

    Which was a trip to an Asian country.


    Quite nice and easy for an alien based where you are, come back with 90 days worth of duty-free Black Label and yer saving money over all.

    Not at the Thai/Malay borders. The Duty free (Zen) is Malaysian, so it may me cheap for them but it's not far off Thai prices.

    I used to buy things I can't get here. Trolleys full of corned beef, HP Sauce etc...

    The cheap booze and fags are smuggled from Langkawi and are readily available in a number of shops on the same street in Hat Yai.
    Lang may yer lum reek...

    ^ Selling up and relocating the family next to Cambodia is always an option.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    As others have said it looks like doing the non-immigrant o visa based on family is my best option.

    The Thai embassy website is quite easy now and don't even have to drive into DC it can all be done online.

    It says they aren't doing the visa stamps now so I guess it's some type of digital deal.

    I will report back how the online process works out. I have already started and so far it seems easy.
